I’m not an overt fan of New Year’s, but I do think it’s exciting to look back on all that has happened in one year! Reflecting and evaluating is really interesting and important, but realizing that change can ALWAYS be implemented is key. There’s no need to wait until the New Year to make changes to our lives.
Looking back on 2018, my blog has grown exponentially, and I am incredibly thankful for everyone who has visited, read, commented, shared, and liked my blog posts. The responses that I receive are what drives me to continue doing what I do, even though it feels like a second full-time job, ha!
